1  Re: Random Swap Round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by JanelleJ on: November 09, 2009 09:08:39 PM
I received a lovely package from polkadotts on Saturday. It has taken me a while to get pics up, but here they are. I really love everything, Lesia!

Spiderman baggies and paper lunch bags for my son

Student planner, which I will use for my son and me since we're both school kids.  Cheesy

Game cases for my husband! These are so cool! His name is Chad, but I call him Chadford (did I put that in my questionnaire or on facebook??) He thought they were great, and of course they are filled with games right now.

Snacks! (any my son's feet)

My favorite thing! It's a beautiful journal! I adore this so, so much. I'm planning on doing a swap and project journal for 2010, and this is what I'll use.

Next up is a key fob that matches the journal. Unfortunately, my husband stole this as soon as I got it from the box. I had to beg him to let me take a pic before he loaded it up with keys. lol.

Stuffed teddy that the kids love and coupon organizer

Bib for my little one. You can never have too many of these with a teething baby!

Check out this very funky jar! My son thinks it's just the coolest, and we're going to use it for our family change jar.

Very cool mug! The handle unfortunately broke off during shipping, but it was a clean break so I can fix it. I love mugs. Grin

I also got a very cool scented heating pad that matches the journal, but it seems I forgot to take a pic. I have now sent it off to my mom's house because I don't have a microwave here, so I'll use it at her house. I'm over there all the time anyway. I'm going tomorrow actually and will use it then.

Thanks so much for all the beautiful things, polkadotts! I hope you receive your package soon and like it as much as I like what you sent.

I love all the cards posted so far! I really like the ghosts of Christmas! That's so cool to make all three. I would frame them and put them up every year.

I received two amazing cards in the mail today.

First I received an ATC made in an unusual way from KatAutumn. It's gorgeous! She made it from balsa wood (what did you use to cut it?), and woodburned on it and used alcohol inks. I just love how it smells. lol. I'm weird about smells.  Grin

I also received a great giraffe card from Nooo! I peeked at her ATC slideshow a few days ago, so I knew that I would be getting this beautiful card. I love it!

Thanks so much ladies!

3  Izak's First Year Album (VERY IMG Heavy) in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by JanelleJ on: November 04, 2009 02:00:59 PM
I hope digital scrapbooking is welcome here. If not, I'll be happy to move or delete this post.

I have finally finished my son's first year album! I get so side-tracked with my seasonal albums every year that I always forget to work on the yearly albums. I would love to know what you all think. Anyway, here it is:

I'm glad you liked everything Spotnik! I have finally found my camera (just in time for Halloween pics of the kids). Would you believe that my hubby put it in the cabinet above the refrigerator? I think that is the most random place to put a camera!

Anyway, I have taken pics and will definitely have them up tonight have posted them! I love everything. Thanks so much for a great swap Spotnik and thanks to kaishabackwards for organizing!

Here is everything all together:

First off is a slouchy hat. Spotnik based my entire package on the color yellow because I LOVE it and have a very yellow wist.

Next is some amazing smelling soap

These earrings are the best earrings ever! I have them on my wist in a different color theme, but I love this pair so much more! These are perfect and I've been wearing them everyday.

This gorgeous journal is in a competition for favorite item from my package. Look how pretty!

Next is this very cool bookmark that I've started using. It will come in very handy this next year because I plan on reading more than I do now.

Then finally I got four luxurious balls of yarn! Yarn is probably my favorite thing to receive in swaps. I'm addicted to it...especially when it's this soft!!

Thanks again so much!!

So...for my OTT I got this AMAZING sugar skull themed mini wallet keychain from my partner Henny Penny! It is so cool! It fits cash and/or a debit card perfectly.

I have it hanging out with my keys as we speak. I just love it so very, very much! Everyone in my house is pretty jealous. I can only dream of ever doing such great embroidery.  The wallet also features this wonderful sugar skull fabric that I've been ohh-ing and ahh-ing over.

Check it out everyone!

Thanks SO much Henny Penny! I would totally wist this if I didn't own it!!

I received my package from mrs.benjiimadden and she COMPLETELY spoiled me!

1.) Vintage
2.) Circus
3.) Lime and Teal Together
4.) Vegetables
5.) Octopus

So...for my vintage theme I got this great vintage-y apron. I wish everyone could feel this apron because it just feels great! I absolutely love it. I tried to have my son take a pic of me wearing it, but he cut my head out of the pic. At least you can still see the apron!

For my circus theme I got this wonderful Tshirt. I really love this design! It's just so cute! I wore it today and my daughter couldn't keep her eyes off the bright colors.

For my lime and teal together theme I got an adorable family of jellyfish. These guys are a hit with the kids! Very cool.

For my vegetables theme I got something that I have needed for a long time. It's an organizer for DVDs or PS3 games! I'm really loving this and am very happy that you made it for us!

Now for the octopus theme. Check out this amazing floor pillow! This thing is HUGE! I included a pic of Lailah on top just to show how big the pillow really is. My wonderful partner was so thoughtful that she included a zipper on the side of the pillow since she knows I don't have a sewing machine, and also sent $5 to pay for the stuffing to stuff the pillow!



As if that wasn't enough, she included lots of great extras.

Izak got this awesome Thomas and Friends shirt, which he wore to school today.

Lailah got two SUPER cute elephant bibs. I don't know if I can even feed her in these because I don't want them to get stained! I think they will be used for when she starts drooling when her top teeth start coming in.

Then I got a makeup bag, which has already been put to use.

I also got this pretty pink and yellow knitted scarf.

Thank you SO SO SO much mrs.benjiimadden!! I love everything. You're an amazing swap partner!!

Nick received his package from MommyTheMaid last Friday, and opened it on Monday. I am very, very sorry about not posting sooner. I have been crazy busy lately and my intentions of posting kept getting pushed further and further down the list of things to do.

Here's is Nick's loot!

First off is this super awesome Goomba (sp?) knitted hat. Nick put it on as soon as he pulled it out of the package. He wouldn't let me get any action shots thought because he said he looked "fat." lol. He's been wearing it everyday to school since receiving.

Next up is this great bag for his DSi, which he is also using and really loving. He thought the little slots for games was just great!

Then we have two reusable sandwich bags in the same camo fabric as the DSi bag. *I* am really jealous of these because they are so well made and I love the lining. Nick likes them as well and has told my mom that she has to pack a lunch for him soon so he can use them.

Last, but certainly not least, is a very cute and funny tank men shirt. Everyone in our house thought that this shirt was very clever, and Nick wore it to school on Tuesday.

Thanks a million MommyTheMaid for such a wonderful package! Nick and I love everything!!

For all those who read my post about how I had been doing my amis wrong, look at those stitches! I did her the correct way and I love it so much more than the other way.

Thanks for looking!
